Icicle

Born and raised in communist Bulgaria, Krassy Halatchev (Icicle) grew up with a few tight friends who were true music maniacs. Being one of them as well, he studied and analyzed every note of the repertoire of his favourite bands (Pink Floyd, Genesis, The Police, The B-52’s, Depeche Mode, The Cure, The Clash…). With a little help from his friends (and band mates) he bought his first bass guitar - a Fender Music Master. It proved to be the best investment he ever made, for it changed Krassy’s life. Following years of ardent practicing and playing in garages and clubs, the skilled musician fled from his native country and landed in Montreal one freezing-cold winter day in 1990. His brother-like peers from the band The Clouds accompanied him in this new and exiting adventure. At the time they were passionately devoted to the 90’s psychedelic rock. After many subway and club gigs, considerable magazine and newspaper coverage, and two full-length albums, the members of the band decided to explore new horizons, this time separately. In 1996 Krassy joined the band Chiwawa. Produced by Steve Whitfield (The Cure, The Mission, The Trash Can Sinatras) and recorded at The Mission’s studio in Bristol, Chiwawa’s first album The Sick World of Yona won the attention of the media. Becoming a core member of the group, Krassy composed and sang a major part of Chiwawa’s seven albums worth of material. In 2014 Icicle released his first solo album, Resurgence. Multifaceted and very seasoned, this 13-piece oeuvre represents a passage door between the past and the future, a quintessence of lessons learned and dreams that lay ahead. His second album, Theorems (2015) cemented Icicle’s broad musical path where rock, pop and funk elements stir a mixture of fresh, innovative and genre defiant sound – Icicle’s specialty.

DESERT TREE

Deep in the desert there was a tree
All by itself solemn and free
It was like no other you’ve ever seen
It kept many secrets for thousands of years

Little by little as if it were a riddle
Word got out it was still alive
Little by little like little pricks and needles
People began to poke around

Then came a man eager to pry
Curious fellow in search for the light
Innocent toiler, he needed to try
To find what was not meant to be found

Little by little he then began to fiddle
Pealing bark and drilling holes
Little by little he came to the decision
The tree was dead, the myth was false

Little by little he made a tiny tittle
And set to pull a sample from inside
Then the worry tripled and doubt rippled
What if the tree were still alive?

There lied a question best left aside
If science and murder were to collide
But that didn’t dither curious George
He needed an answer and so he forged

Little by little he then began to fiddle
Pealing bark and drilling holes
Little by little he came to the decision
The tree was dead, the myth was false

Little by little he made a tiny tittle
And set to pull a sample from inside
Then the worry tripled and doubt rippled
What if the tree were still alive?
